Easter Egg Pretzel bark is such a quick and easy recipe chocolate bark recipe that turns out so beautiful with zero skill needed. This Easter treat would be perfect on an Easter dessert platter, wrapped up in bags for gifts for friends and family, or even just as a fun afternoon activity to do with kids!

What are the ingredients needed for this?

You need just four ingredients to make this recipe:

a top down shot of ingredients needed for easter egg pretzel bark
  • white chocolate - I used some white, and some pale pink and purple, but you can use whatever color combinations you want!
  • pretzels - I like to use the tiny twists for the way they look, but all pretzels taste the same so use your preference
  • mini eggs - its not Easter without mini eggs!
  • sprinkles - I like the pastel nonpareils (small round ones!) for this recipe

How to make Easter Egg Pretzel Bark

step one: melt chocolate and spread white chocolate over a parchment lined baking sheet

step two: drizzle colored chocolate over the white chocolate

step three: swirl the chocolates together

step four: sprinkle the pretzels, followed by the Easter eggs, followed by the sprinkles over top of the melted chocolate, gently push the pretzels and eggs into the chocolate to make sure they stick

step five: allow the pretzel bark to harden, then break into small pieces

How to properly melt chocolate:

There are two different ways I use to melt chocolate, each of them has their benefits and downfalls.

  • microwave: melting chocolate in the microwave is the fastest and easiest method, when done correctly and carefully. I microwave my chocolate for 30 seconds at a time to start, stirring well after each time. Once the chocolate is mostly melted with some small lumps, I let it sit for 15 seconds to see if the heat of the melted chocolate will melt the rest of the lumps (and usually it does!). If not, I reduce my microwave intervals to 15 seconds until completely smooth. Once all the lumps are out the chocolate it is ready to use! The biggest downfall to this method is overheating/burning can happen very quickly and ruin your whole batch of chocolate; following the method above will make sure you get smooth chocolate every time! I almost exclusively use the microwave method as I find it quickest, easiest, and the least messy.
  • double boiler: to melt chocolate in a double boiler, you need to first add about an inch of water to a small saucepan, and bring to a low boil. Add your chocolate to a small heat-proof bowl (I always use stainless steel) and place it on top of the pan. Your bowl should be tight fitting to the perimeter of the pan, and the bottom of the bowl should not be touching the water, you want the heat of the steam to warm the bowl to melt the chocolates. Stir the chocolate constantly as it melts, as soon as it is smooth remove bowl from the pan and it is ready to use! I find this method is less likely to burn the chocolate, but it is definitely more of a hassle to set up and it requires a pan and bowl that fit together perfectly

Tips to make an amazing Easter Egg Bark:

  • use high quality ingredients - the chocolate you use is important! I like to use chocolate meant for melting because it retains its snap after cooling down without any fancy tempering techniques
  • make sure the bowl you're using to melt the chocolate is completely dry - even the smallest drip of water can cause your chocolate to "seize"; which will make the texture closer to play-doh (AKA impossible to work with in this recipe!)
  • when you spread your chocolate, be sure to spread it thin, about 1/4", otherwise it is too difficult to break into pieces and your candies will fall out (and its too hard to take a bite!)
  • I prefer to let me bark harden at room temperature, the moisture in fridges can make the pretzels turn soggy if left for too long, it only takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the temperature
  • when breaking the bark, try to break in spots that do not have a pretzel, as they can fall off if they're on a break line (this can be easier said than done - luckily you can pop the pretzel back in place if it falls out!)
  • store in an airtight container for up to two weeks!
